The approach to 142 South Falls Road meanders along a ridge high above Lake Keowee, and it is from here that one first glimpses the heavenly mountain and lake vistas that make this section of The Reserve at Lake Keowee so desirable. A long driveway descends to the home’s site—resting on a short, easy slope from the water—where the views become unbelievably more dramatic. The home is an impressive sanctuary with a weighty stone and wavy edge siding exterior. Extensive boulder retaining walls enhance the elegantly rustic character. A stone-framed front entry leads to the foyer and great room, while, farther down on the rocking-chair front porch, the owner’s entry opens to a mud room with built-in lockers and desk. The expansive great room showcases far-reaching views with a wall of French doors and arched windows, while offering numerous architectural gems: a massive stone fireplace, vaulted plank ceiling with beam gables, and a lofty upper-level balcony. The open floor plan continues to a generous dining area and granite and stainless kitchen. Windows throughout the home are large, plentiful, and thoughtfully placed so that they harness both natural light and stunning scenery in practically every room. With five well-appointed bedroom suites (main-level master and guest suite, upper-level suite, and two lower-level suites), all with roomy baths, the home can comfortably accommodate out-of-towners. Each of the home’s three levels offers gathering places, including two upper-level bonus rooms, a lower-level family room with fireplace and bar kitchenette, as well as a sizable game room. Entertaining easily flows outdoors to a lake-facing screened porch and both main- and lower-level composite decks, with the lower level wrapping around to the front of the house to provide a convenient shortcut to the lake. The property’s gently curving shoreline is protected and enhanced by massive boulder riprap. Access to the deep water dock site is merely steps away from the lower level, and a private cove offers calm waters for swimming, yet being large enough to ski or wake board directly from your dock. Fishing is also quite good in “B” section cove, due to many natural rock outcroppings and deep, crystal clean, emerald green water. A shake-roofed custom boathouse with lift, power, lights and other features is ideal as a fishing or sun tanning dock. Boats and other watercraft/toys are negotiable as are the home’s furnishings, making this a truly turn key possibility. Buy this spring and enjoy this summer! This model of vacation living is located in The Reserve at Lake Keowee, a luxury gated golf and lake community with a marina, clubhouse with fine and casual dining, village center, pool complex, tennis courts, fitness center, and numerous other amenities.
